What I found interesting about Blasting Cap Danger is it's very odd subplot featuring the kids. Why did they make the girl so tomboyish? I liked how in the first scene she was shown playing with a plane. How this ties in with the main story I'll never know. Then she gets 'shot' in the end, just to move the story along.. bizarre!

It's a good thing they brought the plane into it, because without it, they wouldn't have had the hilariously un-synchronized sound scene of the family greeting Dad at the airport. Every time anyone speaks in that scene, the shot is of someone else.

Also, it's pretty funny to see a tough boy telling a tomboy she should play with dolls, and then going off to play... with another boy. Hmm.

At least they show kids as they really are = ready to beat the crud out of one another. Take out the subplot, tack a new ending on it, and you have a interesting little film about how girls can grow up to be what they want to be.

The ending is indeed wacky. The boys are specifically not invited to the bbq early in the film, but I guess that all changes when you've lived through the traumatic event of not being blasted. And look who's putting the steaks on the grill while no one is watching him - the little twerp who bullies your daughter and was about to blow you up!

I think the lesson to the story is... DON'T TOUCH IT!
